The Engineering Doctorate (EngD) is an alternative to the traditional PhD to help you continue your career in industry. The EngD is equivalent to a PhD in its intellectual challenge, but as a research engineer (EngD) student, your research will be industry-led and your project will involve your company as an industrial sponsor. This provides an unparalleled opportunity to gain experience working at the cutting-edge of research that is relevant to the industry. 

You will gain an in-depth understanding of the fundamentals of renewable and non-renewable energy technologies with the flexibility to tailor the technical and business training to the requirements of the company’s research area and your career aspirations.

The Engineering Doctorate (EngD) in Engineering and Energy combines advanced technical and management training with PhD level research in partnership with an industrial partner/sponsor.

Research projects will be directly relevant to the strategic plans of your industrial partner and cover a wide range of topics in the interrelated, and globally critical, areas of engineering and energy.

EngD in Energy graduates will meet the R&D needs of the energy sector, but also open up opportunities in associated industries. The energy sector drives innovation and value across the economy, pervading sectors like transportation, environment, and manufacturing.

You will benefit from the expertise and academic supervision of both the University Faculty and your industrial sponsor. Research projects will be developed collaboratively by the academic supervisors and the research student in consultation with the sponsoring company. Sponsoring companies can range in size from SMEs to University spin-outs to multinational organisations.
